  2. Similar, I got my place for a steal 8 years ago, the asking price was below market for a quick sale and I offered 20% less for cash sale within 48 hours, and true to my word within 48 hours I had the Chanote (Title Deeds) and a Tabian Baan (Housebook, my Yellow one and Mrs Kong’s Blue one) If I had rented for those 8 years I would have paid over 25% more in rent than I actually paid for the place. When I purchased the property we were 5Km from the nearest BTS station, next year there will be one 250 meters from my front door so the value has skyrocketed. I think I am retired now, dur
  3. How many retirees pay Thai Corporate Income Tax? How many retirees can afford the cost of property? Not read it myself but Mrs Kong says a minimum of 10,000,000 THB to purchase a house and land is being banded about. One thing that pisses me off, and makes Mrs Kong use Thai swear words unfamiliar to me is the fact that you can own a property / yellow Tabian Baan but still have to apply for annual visa, show 400,000 THB and report every 90 days. Given that uncertainty who in their right mind is going to drop 10 Millo THB on a property they have no guarantee of living in for life.

  15. What makes the USD have to be the world reserve? Historically it was the Greek Drachma then the Roman Denari, the Byzantine Solidius then the Arab Dinar. The first truly World Reserve was the Dutch Guilder, helped by the Dutch East Indies Company. It was the 1860’s where most Industrialized Countries fooled the UK and put there currency on the Gold Standard and the Pound Sterling became the International World Reserve. The US Dollar took over post WWII, mainly by default since most of Europe and Japan had no Money left / were in debt, only the US had any money left. What ne
